What's the 'gayest' U.S. city? Not necessarily the most gay friendly

By Stephanie Siek, CNN

(CNN) - Salt Lake City, Utah, is known for breathtaking mountain scenery, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, the 2002 Winter Olympics.

But today it was also named the Gayest City in America by The Advocate magazine.

The Advocate ranked cities according to its own admittedly nonscientific criteria, including the number of gay and lesbian bookstores, elected officials who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, and some edgier metrics like the number of International Mr. Leather competition semifinalists and the presence of nude yoga classes. This year’s list intended to examine cities that are outside the usual orbit of San Francisco, Boston, Miami and New York, and came up with several surprises - Grand Rapids, Michigan, Knoxville, Tennessee. Even Little Rock, Arkansas, ranked 11 out of 15.

Salt Lake City LGBTQ advocates were pleasantly surprised by the rankings.

“Well, you know, we’re all very proud of our community here, and we’ve done a lot of growing and empowering of each other and our allies in the community,” said Valerie Larabee, the executive director of the Utah Pride Center, but “we probably wouldn’t have a higher ranking if the homework was done … We don’t have naked yoga, or at least none of us know about it.”

(For the record: The Advocate counted one nude yoga class there, and one Mr. Leather semifinalist, too.)

According to 2010 Census data analyzed by UCLA’s Williams Institute, 15.36 out of every 1,000 households in Salt Lake City are headed by a same-sex couple. Salt Lake City ranks 81st out of 1,415 cities nationwide in its number of same-sex couples per capita.

The same analysis found that Little Rock had 7.51 gay or lesbian couples for every 1,000 households, ranking it 392nd.

Salt Lake City was ranked higher than several cities many would presume to be gay-friendlier, like Denver, Austin, and Atlanta. But Larabee said that Salt Lake’s top ranking shouldn’t overshadow the discrimination and lack of acceptance that many LGBTQ Utahns still face.

“I appreciate that there’s some humor in the selections, in the indices that were used, but we shouldn’t kid ourselves,” Larabee said. “We, like many of these communities, still have some issues that need to be addressed. While we have a thriving community here, we’re united because we have to be.”

Opinion: Attention Rick Santorum - here's how to support a gay child

Randi Romo heads the Center for Artistic Revolution in Little Rock, which serves as the state’s LGBTQ organization. She was also bemused by the city’s inclusion.

“Little Rock can be friendly, but we still have a lot of the religious right wing rhetoric that feeds into everything,” Romo said.  “Arkansas is one of the only states in the nation that doesn’t have a civil rights commission that can receive and adjudicate civil rights complaints. There are no local or state ordinances to protect [LBGTQ people] against discrimination.”

Here are the top 15 "gayest" cities, as ranked by The Advocate:

15. Denver, Colorado
14. Long Beach, California
13. Austin, Texas
12. Portland, Oregon
11. Little Rock, Arkansas
10. Grand Rapids, Michigan
9. Atlanta, Georgia
8. Knoxville, Tennessee
7. St. Paul and Minneapolis, Minnesota
6. Ann Arbor, Michigan
5. Seattle, Washington
4. Fort Lauderdale, Florida
3. Cambridge, Massachusetts
2. Orlando, Florida
1. Salt Lake City, Utah

    Just curious how do gay men see the lesbian women and how do the lesbian women see the gay men. And also did you wish you were born like the rest.... or straight... I am not sure what the right word is.

        Pogojo, are you purposely being dumb or just naturally stupid? If you chose to love a man, you would be gay...therefore you would be stripped of your right to marry whom you loved unlike a straight person. If you don't understand it, you must have been dropped on your head as a kid.

        Funny that you say "choose" to love. Every time I've been in love with a girl I didn't choose it, it was something that happened. Sometimes it was against our better judgement, distance, or our families didn't get along. If you are choosing who you love, maybe you aren't doing it right.

      The USA is a nation of many religions and beliefs. That's what makes us great. We are the "melting pot" of the world. Several key founders of our nation, like Jefferson and Thomas Paine weren't Christians. As John Adams and Congress stated, "we are not a Christian nation". Having a majority of Christians does not make us a Christian nation anymore that having a majority of women makes us feminist.

      The Treaty of Tripoli (Treaty of Peace and Friendship between the United States of America and the Bey and Subjects of Tripoli of Barbary) was the first treaty concluded between the United States of America and Tripolitania, signed at Tripoli on November 4, 1796 and at Algiers (for a third-party witness) on January 3, 1797. It was submitted to the Senate by President John Adams, receiving ratification unanimously from the U.S. Senate on June 7, 1797 and signed by Adams, taking effect as the law of the land on June 10, 1797.
      The treaty was a routine diplomatic agreement but has attracted later attention because the English version included a clause about religion in America.
      As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion,—as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen,—and as the said States never entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mahometan nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.
      The treaty is cited as historical evidence in the modern day controversy over whether there was religious intent by the founders of the United States government. Article 11 of the treaty has been interpreted as an official denial of a Christian basis for the U.S. government.

        If you don't know that gay men are biologically male and males have testosterone in your body then you're the one that needs to go back to high school, not even community college, to re-learn some of your basics.

        Have you ever seen how hairy some gay bears are? It'd show how stupid you really are if you tried to argue those beer drinking, hairy, smelly men are full of estrogen.

    You people have shown why the atheism movement is gaining momentum in this country. Countries like Sweden, Norway, and Denmark have an average of 85% atheists, yet they have lower crime rates, lower murder rates, and a happier population. Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Afghanistan are the most religious. Is there anyone that wants to live there? I didn't think so. The world gets more sophisticated and better, when people get their heads out of 2,000 year old religious texts, and start using logic and reasoning.

      The problem with logic and reasoning is that you have to understand the difference between correlation and causation. Those countries you named are also richer and more educated as a whole. They also have vastly different governmental systems. Attributing the difference solely to religion, or lack thereof, is neither logical nor reasonable.

      The Bible says that anyone divorcing and remarrying commits adultery (unless their mate already was guilty of adultery). There are FAR FAR MORE Christian adulterers than there are total number of gays who commit an "abomination" like eating shellfish.

      It's all hypocrisy. Just pick and choose whatever you want from the Bible and ignor the Golden Rule and prohibition against passing judgment.

      Perhaps we can look positively on the gay marriage, despite how amoral it is deemed by churches. For instance, maybe gay marriage could lower the worlds quickly climbing population rates, and children who really need a good home and need to be adopted can have one. In my perspective, gay marriage is killing two birds with one stone and could be very beneficial despite the immorality of the whole issue.

        My aunt lived in Saudi Arabia. She said everyone there is extremely rude and cruel if you are not Muslim or male. Islamic countries will eventually all fall apart, and the pigs in those countries will burn in the fires of the desert sands. If Islam is so lovely, how come so many Muslims are leaving those countries to go to Europe? LOL!!

      Muhammad (pig-shiit be upon him), Islam's so-called prophet, was an illiterate liar, thug, bandit, slaver, mass-murderer, and rapiist of children. The Qur'an is tribal desert-vermin Arab culture with a veneer of poorly understood Judaism, Christianity, and Zoroastrianism. As a literary work it is a joke.

      Non-muslims are not welcome in Mecca, where desert-troglodytes idolize a meteorite set into the Ka'ba with stylized metal vul.va around it. Well, Mahmud, you are not welcome in the land of your cultural superiors: the USA. Furthermore, even when our leaders kiss their hind ends, the members of the criminal House of Saud who rule the trash dump you call a kingdom are also not welcome here.

      Be content to sit in your filth, known as KSA, and eat your hearts out over how superior we Westerns are to you backward desert trash. /spit

        wrong again. female female encounters have the smallest incidence of HIV. and for the millions of years that life has been on this planet, AIDS (and humans) have only been here for the flash of a second. are you saying, though, that women haven't been getting chlamydia and gonorrhea and syphilis from men and vice versa for hundreds of years?

    The mainstream media is trying to turn us gay by claiming SLC is gayer than our cities. Michelle Bachmann has been right all along.

    Doesn't really surprise me, most of the Mormons I know (especially the younger ones) have no problems with gays. It is the few old farts that are in charge of their Church that seem to have the problem.

    • Don't believe it

      This "finding" is not surprising...it's not a finding, but a rigged assessment to get back at the LDS Church. Look at the blog–it admits at the outset that it's no where near scientific. So, apparently all we can extrapolate from this is that some folks got together and decided to stir the media pot a bit. It's not worth the time I'm taking to write this comment! And please, speak of the LDS Church with a little more respect–its Humanitarian efforts alone bless thousands of lives, regardless of whether you agree with their doctrinal beliefs and practices.

    The New, New Math
    1. Teaching Math In 1960s
    A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production
    is 4/5 of the price. What is his profit ?

    2. Teaching Math In 1970s
    A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production
    is 4/5 of the price, or $80. What is his profit?

    3. Teaching Math In 1980s
    A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production
    is $80. Did he make a profit ? Yes or No

    4. Teaching Math In 1990s
    A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production
    is $80 and his profit is $20. Your assignment: Underline the number
    20.

    5. Teaching Math In 2000s
    A logger cuts down a beautiful forest because he is selfish and
    inconsiderate and cares nothing for the habitat of animals or the
    preservation of our woodlands. He does this so he can make a profit of
    $20. What do you think of this way of making a living? Topic for class
    participation after answering the question: How did the birds and
    squirrels feel as the logger cut down their homes? (There are no wrong
    answers, and if you feel like crying, it's ok).

    6. Teaching Math In 2010
    Un hachero vende una carretada de maderapara $100. El costo de la
    producciones es $80. Cuanto dinero ha hecho?

    ANSWER: His profit was $375,000 because his logging business is just a
    front for his pot farm.
